Although in the United States the Russian interference in the 2016 election is still under investigation, US President Donald Trump announced on Sunday that he had finalized with Russian President Vladimir Putin the opening of a joint cyber security unit that would secure future election campaigns.

While en route back to Washington from the G20 Summit in Hamburg, Germany, the president summarized via Twitter his time at the conference and in particular, his meeting with Putin during which the two discussed many topics including Russia’s alleged election interference. Trump tweeted that he had asked Putin twice about the issue but that the Russian leader denied the allegations.

After announcing the US-Russian cyber security unit, Trump went on to pass the fire from Moscow to the Democratic National Committee, which he says is not cooperating with the investigation into the hacked computers servers during the 2016 election campaign.
